Speaking after the event Fearon said, “Today’s event was significant in that it enabled young people to access information about relevant employment, training and educational opportunities which are available.

“It gave pupils from various schools, residing in Newry’s Neighbourhood Renewal Areas, the opportunity to talk to local employers, find out about training options and to discuss CV preparation and interview techniques with recruitment professionals.

“It is getting harder to satisfy prospective employers, so everyone needs to be at the top of their game. Young people can find the transition from education to employment difficult, as often they can become overwhelmed with having to choose a career path.

Fearon added, “Events like these are pivotal in giving quality guidance to help people learn of the relevant skills and experience needed to successfully obtain a job. I look forward to future Career Fairs that will help young people in our area choose their career paths.”
